All around Atlanta it is easy to find the large ‘resort’ style retirement communities. With more than 500 homes to sell (often more than 1000), they are in the market for many years. The draw for some to the resort retirement community is the plethora of activities organized at the massive clubhouse and amenities center; or a round of golf on the community golf course. Yet the resort retirement community is not for everyone. Windsong Properties knows the quaint, small Active Adult Retirement Community has plenty to offer for those not into the large scale community.
Communities with less than 100 homes is what we do best. Our communities offer a clubhouse with a game room, small fitness center and catering kitchen. Each community has a self organized social calendar; utilizing the clubhouse for holiday celebrations, sports parties, intense card games, and seminars and classes from local instructors. The social calendar also includes outings to restaurants and events around the Metro area. They even organize an annual “Courtyard Crawl” to visit each others home and discover the beauty of the custom decorated private outdoor living space of each home – the courtyard.
We know that many of our residents enjoy walking so we are sure to include wide sidewalks through the community. Homes are designed to encourage neighborly front porch chats with passers-by. Many residents have added comfy patio chairs or bistro tables to the front porch for just this reason. With professionally managed landscaping in all front yards and common areas, a stroll down the sidewalk is welcome refreshment for the senses.
With less than 100 homes in our communities, neighbors have an opportunity to forge long lasting bonds with one another. Events and get-togethers are smaller and more intimate; providing a setting to cultivate friendships. Neighbors looking out for neighbors has become a positive side effect of the tight knit community. With ‘active’ homeowners vacationing or traveling to visit family, they can ‘lock and leave’ with the comfort of neighbors keeping and eye on their property while they are away.
